Profile:

 

Dixie Jazz Band

The Dixie Saints are a professional jazz band specialising in traditional New Orleans style (Dixieland) jazz. Whether you want a 3 piece band to play laid back background instrumental jazz for a dinner party or a full 6 piece New Orleans jazz band complete with vocals for dancing at an evening event, the Dixie Saints can deliver.

The musicians in the Dixie Saints are all highly trained, highly experienced professional musicians who between them have played at: jazz clubs across the UK including Ronnie Scotts and Pizza Express Jazz Club; jazz festivals and venues in France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Denmark, Switzerland and countless other nations; society events including The Chelsea Flower Show, Henley Regatta and Royal Ascot; event venues ranging from Buckingham Palace to The Savoy to the Gherkin Tower; and all kinds of private events from weddings to birthday parties to corporate events to book launches to river boats.

The Dixie Saints are a self contained fully acoustic band, so no worries about power supplies or any logistical setting up problems – however, for bigger events they can supply a full PA system if required. They can also vary the instrumentation and line up of the band to suit your tastes and type of event.

Testimonials:

Please pass on our appreciation to all who played in the band on Monday. They truly entertained the crowds waiting for the Olympic Torch to arrive and then, just as we had hoped, their happy jazzy sounds kept the people on the High Street for a long time after the Torch had gone through.
Marsha, Beckenham Business Association

Sorry it's a bit late (honeymoon and christmas got in the way), but I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for making the evening of our wedding so enjoyable for everyone. All our guests I've spoken to since have said how great they thought you guys were, how you really made the night and playing our first dance at short notice made it very special so thanks a lot.
Tiffany and Richard O' Brien
